Does she have a regular neurologist? It doesn't sound like a seizure, but is very concerning. Is she on medication? It could be a side effect of her medication, a form of tourettes syndrome, a form of autism... it really could be anything. It is certainly not a good thing though. It really needs to be discussed with a specialist.
She doesn't see a neurologist well maybefor about 5minutes after her EEG but we do have an appointment with her consultant tomorrow .He has mentioned possible ADHD / Aspergers but we are waiting for an appointment with someone esle with reagrds tthis
She is on Epilim which I think can do this so we are going to ask for a change in AEDS.
Thank you very much for your reply
How was your appointment with your doctor?Patients with simple focal seizures do not lose consciousness and will be aware and remember the events that occur at the time. On the ther hand, patients with complex partial seizures will have abnormal consciousness and may or may not remember any or all of the symptoms or events surrounding the seizure. Depending on where in the brain the seizure starts, symptoms vary but may include any of the following: abnormalmuscle contraction, affects one side of the body, abnormal head movements, automatisms or complex, repetitive movements abnormal mouth movements, abnormal sensations, hallucinations, sweating, flushed face, or dilated pupils. Changes in mood or emotion may also be observed.
It would be best to discuss your daughter's symptoms with your doctor for proper evaluation. Take care and regards.
